Mercedes-Benz has announced full details on the 2012 CLS 63 AMG model.
New for the CLS 63 is now AMG's 5.5 liter biturbo V8 engine, which replaces the outgoing naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V8.
The new 5.5 liter biturbo unit features a peak output of 410 kW (557 PS/550 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque with the AMG Performance package. The standard engine configuration is rated at 386 kW (525 PS / 521 bhp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
Both units are mated to the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission.
Fuel economy on the standard CLS 63 AMG now comes in at under 10 liter/100 km (a noteworthy achievement) - with a 9.9 liters per 100 km rating on the European cycle (NEDC).
That represents a remarkable 32 percent improvement in fuel-economy over the predecessor's 6.3 liter unit with an output of 378 kW (514 PS/510 bhp) and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque. That new fuel-economy rating comes by means of a stop/start system, engine technology such as piezo injectors and an aluminum crankshaft, as well as the use of aluminum panels in the body.
The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is 4.4 seconds for the standard model and 4.3 seconds for the CLS 63 with the AMG Performance package. The standard variant has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
The CLS 63 AMG comes with 3 drive modes: 'S' (Sport), 'S+' (Sport plus) and 'M' (Manual) and features AMG Ride Control suspension for a smoother, more exact ride quality with 3 modes of its own: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus.
The 2012 CLS 63 AMG comes standard with high-performance LED headlights, AMG light-alloy wheels in a new triple-spoke design with 255/35R19 and 285/30R19 tires front and rear, respectively.
The AMG Performance package also offers a ceramic high-performance composite braking system, carbon fibre/black piano lacquer trims elements, door sills with illuminated AMG logo, carbon-fiber spoiler lip for the boot and red brake calipers, a seperate set of 19-inch light alloys in a double 5-spoke design and, aside from the aforementioned performance Boost, the package includes a top speed limit bumped up to 300 km/h (186 mph).
Prices in Germany for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG start at €115,846.50 including 19 percent VAT. The AMG Performance package rings in at €7735 (VAT included).

All-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class revealed
Mercedes-Benz has officially released photos and details on the upcoming
2012 CLS-Class which will make its debut at the Paris motor show in
In these official photos we now get to see the design of the 2012 CLS-Class
in its entirety. The flared wheel arches along with the broad shoulder
lines and a flattened nose give the CLS a far more muscular look than its
New technology on the CLS-Class includes the LED headlamps, which feature a
total of 71 individual lights. The lights are split into three sections,
with the upper set forming the turn indicator, the middle serving as a low
beam side light which also works when the high beams are on. There are the
headlights themselves which do the night lighting.
Inside is an interior finish done with some human touches. The wrap-around
dash goes from door to door and holds the instrument panel and display
screen. There are also matte galvanized vents and an analogue clock. The
handcraft is featured in the stitched seat covers as well as in the
dashboard and Mercedes-Benz has gone through the trouble of preshrinking
the leather it uses on the CLS so it won't tighten up in the heat.
High-gloss wood panels are also embedded inside the cabin - on the dash,
center console and door linings. Buyers have a choice of brown burl walnut
or black ash.
What Mercedes-Benz hasn't yet announced is which power plants will make it
under the bonnet of the CLS. But we can expect the usual suspects - a 250
CDI with 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp), a 350 CDI with 265 PS (195 kW / 261 hp),
a 3.5-liter V6 with 306 PS (225 kW / 301 hp) and a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 with 435 PS (320 kW / 429 hp).
Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic all-wheel drive system will likely be made available
on most of the torque-ier models.
We can expect those engine details to be made public once the 2012
CLS-Class debuts at the Paris motor show which runs October 2 - 17, 2010.
2012 Mercedes SLK-Class officially revealed
Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled the 2012 SLK roadster.
The most distinguishing feature of the new SLK, now in its third
generation, is the panoramic roof with Magic Sky Control, whereby the the
transparency of the 'vario-roof' can be changed from light to dark.
The new front face of the SLK, with its more upright grill, references the
SLS AMG as well as being in keeping with Benz's new design paradigm which
is holding to that feature. But the new design still improves on the SLK's
drag co-efficient, though - 0.30 compared to the previous model's 0.32.
The SLK350 model comes fitted with a new 3.5 liter V6 doling out 302 bhp
(225 kW / 306 PS) and powering the SLK to a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) sprint
time of 5.4 seconds. Top speed is 155 mph (250 km/h).
An SLK250 will be launched later in the year with a 1.8 liter unit
producing 201 PS (148 kW). The SLK250 has a respectable 0 to 60 mph sprint
time of 6.5 seconds and also features the same top speed as in the V6.
Mercedes-Benz promises a better ride on the new SLK thanks to firmer
springs and dampers on the suspension and torque vectoring brakes.
New technology on the SLK includes an Airguide windstop system - a new
invention from Mercedes-Benz's clever engineers to help control air flow
and noise in the cabin area when the top is down.
Order books open in Germany on 17 January 2011. The prices including VAT
are as follows:
SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY: 38,675 euros,
SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY: 44,256.10 euros,
SLK 350 BlueEFFICIENCY: 52,300.50 euros.
The 2012 SLK-Class makes its U.S. showroom debut in summer 2011.

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class created a new vehicle category in 2003 by
combining the elegance and expressiveness of a coupé with the comfort and
functionality of a sedan. The Mercedes CLS delighted the public, astounded
the competition and created a new style icon: for years the CLS has endured
as the only four-door coupé in its class, and since October 2004 it has
been the car of choice for around 170,000 buyers worldwide. "Customers all
over the world benefited from our bold move to launch a completely new
vehicle concept onto the market", explains a delighted Dr. Joachim Schmidt,
member of the board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales & Marketing. "And with its
exciting design, the new edition of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class also
benefits from the fact that we are a whole generation ahead of the
competition with our four-door Coupé."
Celebrating its world premiere at the Paris motor show (October 2 - 17,
2010), the 2012 CLS-Class builds on the pioneering role of its predecessor
with a fresh new interpretation. "The new Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class points
the way forward for the future perceptible design idiom of Mercedes-Benz",
explains Professor Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes-Benz. "At the
same time it takes its inspiration from the great tradition of stylish,
refined sportiness which has always been a feature of Mercedes coupés."
